I Am A Freak!!

Blogging Friends.... This has easily been the busiest Summer of my Life {And I am not in any way, shape, or form, complaining!!} Every Tuesday, we have been watching my niece, "Amethyst"!! All. Day. Long!! And every Friday, we have had my ten-year old cousin. All. Day. Long!! So please pardon me for being a stranger to all of your Blogs!! I will return.... Eventually!! And please excuse Beautifully Unique's random posts of late!! I am working on a story about Rose!! Slowly but surely!! My Life right now has seemingly become a purpose-given combination of spending quality time with Rose, watching kids, and writing!! Love you later.

Taken from my Life Story!! Which was written in 2012 through 2013!!

I am a freak. This birth defected, learning disabled, weird and crazy freak!! Plus, I am an oddball, too!! I shall announce this "loud and proud", as that phrase goes. Yes, loud and proud. For I shall stand atop the balcony of some tall skyscraper. And scream. I!! AM!! A!! FREAK!! Because I am definitely not human!! And, that is okay. You know what? Society says "freak" as though it's a negative thing. Yes, negative. Oh, and you must automatically need therapy on account of being a freak!! I do not like that mindset. And, why is it, exactly, does society think of "weird" as being negative? Like "weird" is some fault or shortcoming. I do not like that mindset, either. For society has long-ago deemed anybody who is different--whether developmentally, physically, or both--as some "freak". Like they are an animal infected with rabies. But I think that the word freak (And weird!!) should be used only in positive ways. I am a freak. I am a freak!! Or, as my phrase goes, I'm Beautifully Unique. A Beautifully Unique freak. (Hey, it rhymes!! The poetess within me likes that!!)

Taken from my private Word document journal entry!! Which was--for the most part--written yesterday!!

Ever since I was a teenager, I've considered myself a freak. Inhuman. How so? I was born defected, with craniosynostosis/congenital diaphragmatic hernia/Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome. I have, my entire Life, lived with premature short-term memory loss as though I'm some middle-aged person. I am a learning disabled individual. I'm "hard to kill", as that phrase goes. I am both physically and emotionally resilient. I'm a weird, crazy, misfit, outsider oddball. You know what? I have long felt like a mutant from X-Men. However. I am--throughout time--gradually gaining self-acceptance regarding my birth defects, premature short-term memory loss, learning disabilities, and being a weird, crazy, misfit, outsider oddball!! I. AM. A. FREAK!! And now? Thanks to folliculitis decalvans, I will possibly eventually look like a bald-headed freak with Frankenstein-like craniosynostosis scars. Bring it on!!

Hi, Raelyn! Freaks like us make the world function. Copernicus was ridiculed because he knew that the solar system is heliocentric.
